Hurricane Michael Relief

Updated on October 12, 2018

Hurricane Michael will go down in history as the third strongest hurricane to hit the United States. Michael made landfall on October 10th with winds of 155 mph.

Some coastal Florida cities were destroyed beyond recognition.

Hurricane Florence Relief

Updated on September 18, 2018

Hurricane Florence, one of the strongest storms to hit the Eastern Seaboard in decades, made landfall in North Carolina in the early hours of September 14th as a Category 1 storm. Though downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, within days Florence has caused catastrophic and historic flooding and continues to wreak havoc as it slowly moves north. In some areas, over 30 inches of rain have fallen. The National Weather Service warns the flooding will only get worse in some parts of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia as rivers continue to rise. As of September 18th, 32 storm-related deaths have been reported, and about 500,000 homes and businesses remain without power in North and South Carolina. Tens of thousands of homes have been damaged.

According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, 5.6 million Syrians are registered as refugees seeking assistance in neighboring countries, and the total number of people fleeing Syria may be much higher than that. The violence has also displaced 6.1 million people within Syria where the distribution of aid is difficult. The Syrian conflict has created the world’s worst refugee crisis since World War II.
